OLD/CURRENT BUSINESS:

I.  Convention Summary

  • President Paul Frankenfeld gave a synopsis of the convention in Las Vegas.  Barbara Lambert also summarized the Mid America Conference meeting and Carol Dunevant reported she would be typing up and sharing information from the Public Relations Committee.
  • Based on the summaries Lou Lausche commented on the performing rights costs that performance venues must pay.  Many venues get priced out of having live music because of the cost.  President Frankenfeld noted that alongside Iran, North Korea and China, the US and Canada do not have a Performance Rights Act.  This type of Act can be found elsewhere in the world.  President Frankenfeld also noted that Tina Morrison on the IEB would be the person to contact regarding possible talks with BMI, ASCAP, etc.
  • President Frankenfeld concluded the convention synopsis by describing the outpouring of support for the musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra.  Don Hurd made a motion to send $500 to Local 30-73 to assist them during the lockout.  Joe Gaudio made the second.  The motion passed unanimously.

II.  Herald Trumpets/Aida

  • President Frankfenfeld reported that the opera production of Aida used our herald trumpets and he will have the office bill the opera appropriately.

 

III. Carnegie
